Hida Minzoka Mura Folk Village (Hida no Sato)
#1 of 45 Museums in Takayama
The village itself is quite small and walking along the Main Street you can take detours to visit are museums and temples.
Great village atmosphere with different houses showing different lifestyles such as farmhouses, the woodworker house, house/museum for silkworm breeding etc. Refreshments opposite village at bus stop.

Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall
#2 of 45 Museums in Takayama
Having seen pictures of the floats at various museums around town and their storage places(really large cupboards) situated at different spots in the heritage areas, it was great to see them "live".
well worth a visit to look round the floats they are behind glass but you can see them really well the museum is designed so that you can see all the way round the floats recommended
Hida Takayama Museum of Art
#3 of 45 Museums in Takayama
One of our favorite museums in Japan
The cafe is fabulous too, overlooking Japanese Alps drinking organic red wine after exploring the museum was superb way to end my visit to such a special museum.
Takayama Showa Museum
#4 of 45 Museums in Takayama
Perk is that it stays open a lot longer than other museums (until around 6pm) so you can visit later in the day.
Japan is a country of high contrasts and this museum is perfectly located in the sedate, historic town of Takayama.
Takayama Museum of History and Art
#5 of 45 Museums in Takayama
Museum outlines the interesting history of the building it is housed in, the history of the town - it’s founders, economy, social and culturally plus the impact the town has had on Gifu as a whole.
Beautiful museum where you can learn a lot about the history of Takayama.

Hikaru Museum

The best art museum, I have seen in Japan.
This museum is jaw-dropping in its scale.

Lion Dance Ceremony Exhibition Hall (Shishi-Kaikan)
#9 of 45 Museums in Takayama
There is also a huge collection of lion heads at the museum - found it fascinating, especially seeing how different parts of Japan would have done the lion heads differently.
This is also known as the Karakuri museum, and it's the live puppetry demonstrations (about 40mins in total duration) which are the highlight rather than the collection of lions masks.
Sakurayama Nikkokan
#10 of 45 Museums in Takayama
So a museum with a perfect scale model was a great alternative to the real thing.
It’s a small museum with miniatures of selected buildings in Japan (I think).
Hida Takayama Teddy Bear Eco Village
#11 of 45 Museums in Takayama
The museum is literally filled with bears from many generations ago, and even has exhibits of bears crafted after famous personalities such as Gandal, Ted, and others.
Great teddy bear museum
Hida Takayama Art and Festa Forest

Takayama Municipal Government Memorial Hall
#13 of 45 Museums in Takayama
All of this while walking in your socks, not too many places you can say that you have to be barefoot in a museum.

Hida Folk Archeological Museum (Hida Minzoku Kokokan)
#16 of 45 Museums in Takayama
So often all that is preserved are the grand and important buildings, this museum was a delight because it houses a variety of traditional rural buildings that have been used for generations of families.
